Dr. Tom Burns

Tom Burns, DVM, Hospital Director

  • Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine (Honors)
  • Graduate work at Harvard University
  • BA from Boston College

In his own words, Dr. Burns decided to become a veterinarian because, “It’s what I was born to do. I’ve always loved science and medicine. It’s a totally natural fit.” Dr. Burns lives by the mantra that if you are not improving, you are declining. To that end, he always strives to bring his absolute best to every patient visit, working to enhance the quality of life of each pet that he sees.

Dr. Burns first became the Hospital Director of Veterinary Associates of Cape Cod in 2005. He is also proud to serve on the Board of Directors for the Cape Animal Referral & Emergency Center (CARE) and previously served as President of the Cape Cod Veterinary Medical Association.

Cleon Turner and the Massachusetts House of Representatives in recognition of his vital role in protecting the local commonwealth from the spread of rabies.

Pets are an integral part of Dr. Burn’s family, and part of his commitment to service comes from the knowledge that pets everywhere deserve the highest quality of care possible.

Dr. Burns lives with his wife Whitney and their three children, Jack, Ellie, and Chloe, alongside their two Goldendoodles, Fin and Zoe. He also enjoys kayaking, paddle boarding and underwater photography. In fact, in 2015, Dr. Burns completed a ten-week assignment with National Geographic in conjunction with their widely popular, Nat Geo Wild Channel. His photos on white sharks and underwater life have been published around the world, but nothing makes him happier than caring for your pets here in South Yarmouth, Massachusetts.
